A Very Distant Shore : Quick Reads Paperback
by Jenny Colgan
Wanted: doctor for small island. Must like boats, the seaside and having no hope of keeping a secret... Lorna lives on the tiny Scottish island of Mure, a peaceful place where everyone helps their neighbour.
But the local GP is retiring, and nobody wants his job. Mure is too small and too remote. Far away, in a crowded camp, Saif is treating a little boy with a badly-cut hand.
Saif is a refugee, but he's also a doctor: exactly what Mure needs. Saif is welcome in Mure, but can he forget his past?
Over one summer, Saif will find a place to call home, and Lorna's life will change forever.
